Is it time for a sequel already?
If you’ve been following my blog, you know that one of my best friends crushed me last week when he ended our friendship. Told me he wanted me out of his life – needed me out of his life – and perhaps one day we would be friends again, but not right now.
I spent the better part of 4 days curled in a ball crying over it. My world was crashing down around me. My life felt – empty. My footing, unsure. This was someone I talked to daily – 10x a day, on a slow day. And now there was silence.
There was a lot of silence for him, too, and he was miserable without me just as much as I was without him.
Because he called me a few days ago with the words I needed to hear: “I’ve missed you.” The problems in our friendship – the problems he thought he couldn’t fix – turns out, weren’t as important as having me in his life. These are the best possible words I could have heard.
Am I scared of getting hurt again? Yes. Do I need him in my life? Something fierce. Am I invested in working this out? Absolutely.
Stay tuned … (or send me a message telling me you’re sick of this already! I will understand.)
